    Perhaps other reason the dynamics have changed:

    * Before he left office, it seemed Cheney had few interviews, and most were with friendly Fox.  So there was not a lot of material to rebut.

    * While there were many outrageous lies, now Cheney is keeping his lies in the center of the news spotlight.

    * Democrats never seemed to create a successful platform to rebut Cheney, and it seemed that the burden fell on the media's shoulders to do the job.  Now that Obama's in the WH, finally there's an effective voice of reason that widens the scope of reporting and analysis by the media.

    The current GOP is similar to a fungus in that while both are alive, it's just hard to prove it. -Craig Shirley
